Amtrak offers lower fares on Acela Express

Posted on February 17, 2009

Beginning March 3, Amtrak will offer a new low fare on its premier Acela Express trains, saving passengers up to 25 percent on previous lowest fares.

Now available for purchase, Acela Business class tickets will be priced as low as $99 between Washington, D.C. and New York, and $79 between New York and Boston. Until now, the lowest fare available on Acela between Washington, D.C. and New York was $133, and $93 between New York and Boston.

The new low fares are available for purchase now for travel between March 3 and June 26. A 14-day advance purchase policy applies, and availability is limited.

"As Amtrak becomes an increasingly popular way to travel, these new low fares on Acela will make our flagship service more affordable for business and leisure travelers," said Emmett Fremaux, vice president of marketing and product management.
